Inolex launches hemp-derived conditioning and emulsification ingredient

Inolex has launched ProCondition Sativa (Cannabisamidopropyl Dimethylamine) a sustainable conditioning ingredient derived from hemp.

The US firm says the Cannabis sativa seed oil-based ingredient designed for hair, skin, and body care delivers performance as both a conditioning agent and as an emulsifier with multiple functional and performance benefits.

“We see the rise of consumer groups aligned with naturality, wellness, and sustainability, converging on sustainably made, cannabis-derived products. ProCondition Sativa’s hemp-based cationic is ideal for brands designing CBD or hemp-based products for hair or skincare with a focus on sustainable and plant-powered materials,” added marketing VP Lisa Gandolfi.

As a non-quat cationic hair conditioning agent, ProCondition Sativa is said to have comparable performance to Cetrimonium Chloride (CTAC) while being safer for skin and eyes, and non-toxic to aquatic life.

As a primary emulsifier, the ingredient builds formulation stability by formation of lamellar liquid crystals and provides versatility in viscosity building. Along with imparting functional performance, the cannabis-derived ingredient supports a brand’s ability to make cannabis product claims in alignment with consumer expectations.

The ingredient is USDA Certified Biobased (82%), has an ISO 16128 Natural Origin Index of 0.78, and is Halal certified, Kosher compliant, vegan-friendly, readily biodegradable, and never tested on animals.
